Technology Community

Join the conversation

More than just a conference, CERAWeek is a community that fosters senior level collaboration and dialogue among participants. Thought leaders from start-ups and traditional energy companies as well as investors, government representatives and academics gather during the week to explore the great transformation underway in technology and its impact on the energy future.

CERAWeek features the Innovation Agora @ CERAWeek a dedicated space focused on conversations about the emerging technologies—from digitalization to robotics, storage, and mobility—that are converging to create the energy industry of the future.

Members of the long-running CERAWeek Energy Innovation Pioneers Program are showcased in the Agora. Selected by a panel of IHS Markit experts, these individuals are working on technologies and/or businesses models that have the potential to disrupt the established wisdom within the global energy industry.

Join the conversation on a range of critical issues including:

  • Block chain technology: what is the impact across the energy system
  • Mobility & transportation demand
  • Future workforce: “smart collar” jobs
  • Frontiers of science and innovation: meeting the energy and climate challenges
  • AI & energy: revolution or evolution?
